Product Description

After months of beta testing, the machined aluminum Gear Head Extruder is now available.  The longer tensioner arm makes for easier filament loading.  The two drive gears engage against your filament in order to extrude it forcefully and evenly.  The Gear Head Extruder is Printrbot’s premium extruder.
